Do you remember this post? It has been almost exactly one year since I posted that blog entry wondering about the little baby that would join our family. I had purchased a little white sweater for a baby I didn't know. We had no idea of gender yet, let alone personality. I remember feeling hopeful and nervous. I was hopeful that everything would go smoothly, that life would fall into a new rhythm, that our new baby would be healthy. More than anything I hoped that Cordelia and her new sibling would love each other.
A year later I have a baby in that soft sweater and a 3 year old who loves her sister.
I feel deep gratitude that my hopeful sweater has been filled in ways more wonderful than I could have imagined.
